The Obsessed Finish New Album

The Obsessed have officially finished their new album “Gilded Sorrow.” The effort will include eight tracks and it will have a running time of “about 36 [or] 37 minutes.”

Scott “Wino” Weinrich said the following during an appearance on “Heavy Galaxy“:

“It’s mastered. Personally, I think it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done. Adding a second guitar player, I think, was one of the better decisions I’ve made over the years.”

He continued:

“I think it’s got a little bit something in it for everybody. It’s sort of like traditional OBSESSED. All the songs don’t sound the same.”

He went on to say one song is called “Stoned Back To The Bomb Age”:

“I always listened to the radio, so I was listening to a defense department briefing [after 9/11]. And [Richard] Armitage said, ‘If Pakistan gets involved in this conflict, we’re gonna bomb them back to the stone age.’ So I was, like, ‘Wow.’ So, ‘Stoned Back To The Bomb Age’ — it’s kind of a little bit of a comment on modern stuff.”

He also added:

“[I’m] not really pulling any punches. But at the same time, I’m not trying to shoot myself in the foot either. The music has gotta talk. The reason I even have an audience at all is from the music. I appreciate the fact that I’ve been able to have a long and fruitful career. I really do.”
